Stepping Forward in Table Tennis

Newgy Robo-Pong

In table tennis, footwork is important for all levels.  Using the Newgy Robo-Pong 2050 table tennis robot is one of the best ways to improve footwork.  Most players try to improve their side-to-side footwork, which is important.  However, only a few players try to improve their in-and-out footwork.

In-and-out footwork is vitally important for the slow block, especially when you are away from the table.  Watch how Joo Se Hyuk demonstrates the stepping in on this video:

Using the Newgy Robo-Pong 2050, I go to:

Normal Mode


Head Angle 8

Speed  12

L Position 10

R Position 20

Wait 1.40

Oscillator ON

Speed Random 5

This drill will give me varied depths of balls to my forehand.  I focus on staying away from the table, then stepping forward for the slow ball.  I suggest adding this drill to your daily table tennis training routine; you will be seeing major improvements in just a couple weeks.
